Wings Over Houston - 10-27-12

I went to Austin to visit my sister. Since we grew up going to air shows i thought it would be fun to go see the Blue Angels again, it had been years since either of us has seen them. We both love them, you can tell i do bc its one of two EDFs i own. She does as well, last time she was in Omaha to visit me we went to the LHS so i could grab a couple little things and she picked up a Blue Angel kite. Anyway. We made the drive to Houston on 10-27 and the following pics and videos are things i saw that day. I was super excited to see the F-22 Raptor as i have not seen that demonstration before. The day was LOADED with Warbirds galore, Heritage flight, Blue Angels and even a Chevy S-10 fitted with a JET ENGINE!!!! Good times! Without further ado.

(Sad to say i goofed up when recording the F-22 demonstration. I had hit record on accident and didn't realize i was recording when the camera was in my pocket and stopping it while trying to 'record' fly byes)

Here are the pics from my iPod, i will have videos up on youtube and embed them as well as more pics from my gf's camera and my brother-in-laws iPod as soon as they are on my computer. Enjoy!

Thanks for the pictures. I didn't know that any F7F's where still alive and well. That was good to see. I'm a big Grumman fan. They sure built some great planes.

If you are ever in the Pensacola Florida area be sure to go to the naval museum. It's out of this world. I went every year when I lived in the New Orleans area.

Now that I think of it. I need to make another trip from down here in Hudson Florida. It will be a long drive but well worth it. Takes a full day to the museum. Big plus is it's free. I never went that I didn't have a great time. Also eat in the officers club. You'll meet some great kids!
